Ripley's movie review

This is one of those movies where it feels like they threw in the character development scenes because they thought they had to. Fortunately, they only threw in a few, leaving the majority of the movie for the action scenes. And those are fun, with enough surprises (I'd been carefully avoiding the trailers) and unique elements to make them really enjoyable. It's definitely worth watching.

Newt's movie review

I loved that long, exciting 007 start. That really works for me. It was a good story with great execution and the coolest toys and stunts. Definitely check it out because it is visually stunning and worth your time.
